It's been a busy week between our end-of-school activities and all the new pattern details we're working on here at CKC. We are definitely ready for a great three-day weekend! It is so fun to see all the patriotic outfits you're making for Memorial Day. What a special day to celebrate here in the U.S.!
Before we jump into the weekend though, we want to make sure you didn't miss out on any of the excitement here this week. We have a super huge announcement too, so be sure to read on!
Look at this amazing new women's swimsuit we released this week! Xiomara's Ruched Tankini and Bikini has the two top options, as well as two bottom options: regular bottoms and shorts. You can give yourself a little coverage or a lot, depending on your preference. It's perfect for everyone and has sewn in cups for extra support. Even if you've never made swimwear before, you will love your results with Xiomara's! It fits sizes XS - XL. Be sure to check out the tester photos -- this set looks amazing on all different body types!
We released new cut files this week too and there is something for everyone! The Graduation Hat has 5 grades in it, the Grade Book includes 13 grades, Snap a Lot includes Mom, Dad and I in it, Secretly a Mermaid, We're All Mad Here, Mom Needs Caffeine, Mom's Best Friend and Y'all need Jesus! They all include both SVG and DXF files for silhouette and Cricut Explore machines and a PDF to help you with the multi layer files. Here's your chance to personalize your creations even more!
Polly’s Pocket Dress is sure to please any pocket-loving girl! The show stopping features on this dress are lined pockets and beautiful customized bias straps. The dress can be made in all woven fabrics, or mix and match knits (as long as the bias tape is woven). This dress is perfect for twirling summer fun, or layered to last through many seasons. The bodice is fully lined without any enclosures. You can get Polly's in both Babies (NB-18/24m) and Girls sizes (2T to 14)!
We have two beautiful Tween Releases for you this week too. Tween Rosetta's Ruffle Neck Top and Dress is perfect for the warm weather! This stunning dress features a unique new bodice with a ruffled neckline, and an all elastic casing back. Dress it up or down for a fun summer addition to your tween's wardrobe. Next up is Tween Everlee's Dress and Maxi. With this stunning tie back on a newly designed bodice, it's a show stopper! Be sure to check out all its features in our photo gallery on the listing. Your tween will love both of these!
Zyrina’s Harem Romper is such a fun pattern and an epic throwback that’s sure to get you many compliments! It features both full and split design options and is made entirely with knit fabric. Rompers are super trendy right now and Zyrina's couldn't be any cuter! It's available in both Girls and Babies sizes.
Our final new release for this week is Juniper's Ruffled Bell Bottoms! These adorable pants have several options she will love.
